Popular radio host Dave Ramsey has shared his opinion regarding Bitcoin as an investment.

Dave Ramsey Says Crypto Operates Around ” Get Rich Quick” Mentality

Dave Ramsey, who offers budgeting and debt advice, insists that crypto should not be regarded as an investment.

Bitcoin Dips Below 40K, Sparks More Panic

Earlier on Monday, Bitcoin (BTC) dipped below the $40,000 mark for the first time since September 2021, sparking more fears amongst investors.

Recall that the downtrend began some six weeks ago, and in the short time, more than $333.5 billion was lost from the total market capitalization of crypto. However, the market capitalization has since Saturday bounced at $1.898 trillion keeping hopes alive.

Today’s dip however may be another indication that the worst is yet to be over, giving more credence to the line of thoughts that people like Dave Ramsey hold.

Any Real Hopes?

Many expert analysts have maintained that the ground floor for Bitcoin is around $30,000. According to one of these experts, BTC will still dip further, leaning towards the $30K mark before finally picking up to the highly predicted $100,000.

Dave Ramsey may also have a point bearing in mind that Bitcoin had no trading data in existence prior to the 2008 financial crisis.
